Does Anyone Know this Gentleman?

Martin Warburton sent me the following cutting from the The Connecticut Courant dated Monday, April 27, 1801.

John Warburton is a Machine Builder and Cotton Manufacturer from Manchester, England who had established an extensive Cotton Manufactory at North-Bolton, near Hartford, Connecticut to produce Knitting Cotton that no other manufacturer can furnish at better quality, or lower price.

I am familiar with a couple of families that emigrated to Massachusetts, and one even set up a factory. But this is an earlier emigration, and I’m not familiar with any families in Connecticut. Quite possibly John didn’t have children, or the line died out later.

If anyone does have anymore information of John I would like to hear it.

    1. I am not sure it was this John. 2 reasons: 1. hHis wife was still in Edenfield when she died in 1829. 2. The John in Connecticut was said to be from Manchester, not Edenfield, or Bury.
